|THE ART OF DANCE, SCIENCE WOVEN IN NEW Explore Green™ INITIATIVE
Explore Green™ is teaming with the celebrated modern dance company, Capacitor, to bring the interpreted art of world ecosystems to stages around the world, inspiring audiences with themes of conservation and natural beauty.
Capacitor, a San Francisco-based interdisciplinary dance company, is renowned for conceptually-rich, bound-breaking performances. Capacitor artists collaborate with members of the scientific community to create mind-expanding, heart-gripping live performances. The company encourages contact with scientific concepts in ways which allow audiences of all ages to see patterns and relationships inherent in nature and the cosmos.
Through performance, Capacitor personalizes large, abstract concepts and, in doing so, transcends cultural barriers—widening the scope of basic human experience. In Biome, The Perfect Flower, and the soon-to-be debuted, The Ocean Project, Capacitor teams with esteemed scientists who want to elevate the themes of art and preservation in new and entertaining ways.
“Capacitor is the embodiment of what Explore Green™ means when we say we seek creativity to engage audiences about the environment and exploration,” said Paul Zemitzsch, president of Explore Green™. “Their work reflects the fusion of entertainment, politics and the environment that we see growing around the world today.”
Jodi Lomask, Artistic Director of Capacitor, praised the collaboration. “We are fortunate to have found Explore Green™—a representative that is sensitive to the unique nature of our offering and the impact we want to express,” she said.
Capacitor’s performances have received rave reviews. The New York Times calls the troupe “ingenious.” Citysearch says, “Visually stunning and mindfully confounding, Capacitor juxtaposes the evolution of mankind against the evolution of technology, stretching the human form across space and time. Some call it modern dance, others a religious experience.”
“A reverie on nature’s communion with itself and our interconnectedness to a fragile ecosystem,” said The Village Voice. “Truly groundbreaking…fresh, original food for the mind as well as the heart,” according to The San Francisco Guardian.
Capacitor also brings interactive workshops to groups, companies, schools and organizations to learn how to reach the artist in us all. Capacitor is available for booking through Explore Green™.
